Don has an M.B.A. from Georgetown University who has been helping growing companies optimize their technical, financial and business operations for over 20 years. His expertise covers software and database development, data analysis, finance, project management, client services, strategic planning and general operations.
In 1993, he co-founded and managed a multimedia software company, Potomac Interactive Corporation, which became a multimillion profitable company within the first three years of its inception. In 1997, Potomac merged with a similar firm, NetResponse, and then merged with iXL, another startup by Don, having operations in the US and Germany. The success of this venture in the US by 2000 took Don to revitalize the iXL operations in Germany which he achieved within six months of his being SVP of Operations & Client Services.
From 2001 to 2002, Don oversaw the business and marketing aspects of Gene Logic’s entry into enterprise bioinformatics software. Traditionally a genomics information company with a strong software capability, Gene Logic launched the successful Genesis Enterprise System in mid-2001. This was followed by Don’s joining the Support Functions group of companies. He has played a key role in automating processes for clients. In addition to his role as the Director of Process Automation at Support Functions, Don is 9Ware’s Managing Director.
